A single sin can cause to fall

Can end a soul in hell

When on life’s King they fail to call

And fail their fault to tell

 

A single sin can cause hell’s fire

Eternally alone

And for the lust of self-desire

Torture one’s flesh and bone

 

These facts are neither myth nor lie

This best you understand

But God’s warning before we die

We’ll know The Truth first hand

 

The Truth of God, is Christ His Son

The mirror of His soul

God’s awesome Word, life’s liquid Light

To ask salvation’s grace

 

There’s no small sin nor any large

No fouler stench than shame

Equal, are all when God lays, charge

Defending Jesus’ name

 

Did Jesus’ death not well suffice?

The consequence of sin

Did God refuse the sacrifice?

Each fallen soul to win

 

Accepted was salvation’s Lamb

Christ Jesus on the tree

Whatever shameful sin would damn

Jesus can set us free

 

Christ Jesus is the answer friend

To life and Heaven’s quest

The living God beginning and end

And life’s eternal rest…..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
